Fluorometholone Acetate



  • Acute and chronic non-infectious conjunctivitis, as well as allergic keratitis, are treated with fluorometholone acetate ophthalmic suspension.
  • Inflammation in the anterior chamber of the eye that is not infectious (including anterior uveitis, episcleritis and scleritis).
  • Irritative symptoms following strabismus, cataract, and glaucoma surgery.



Fluorometholone is a corticosteroid that has a strong anti-inflammatory effect while having no effect on intraocular pressure. Fluorometholone has anti-inflammatory properties that are at least 40 times stronger than Hydrocortisone. Phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins are considered to be introduced by corticosteroids. These proteins are thought to regulate the manufacture of powerful inflammatory mediators like prostaglandins and leukotrienes by preventing the release of their common precursor, arachidonic acid. Phospholipase A2 releases arachidonic acid from membrane phospholipids. Fluorometholone degrades more quickly in tissue than other corticosteroids, hence it has less of an effect on intraocular pressure. Fluorometholone’s immunosuppressive effect is less pronounced than Dexamethasone’s.


Dosage and Administration

1 drop instilled into the conjunctival sac 2-4 times daily. During the initial 24 to 48 hours the dosage may be safely increased to 1 drop every hour. Care should be taken not to discontinue therapy prematurely. Shake well before use.
